Digital data rooms are tools that companies use to safely and efficiently share sensitive documents. A data room can also be an effective way to safeguard intellectual properties. While a variety of tools are used to share documents, they do not provide the same level of security, auditing capabilities, and watermarking features that a data room does.

The most popular use-case for the use of a virtual data room is due diligence before closing on a deal. There are a lot of documents that need to be shared at this point and it must be done in a safe environment to ensure that crucial data is not compromised. This is a crucial time for an organization whether it is contemplating an acquisition by another company or considering a purchase offer. They need an application that is simple to use to share information with outside parties without risking leak of data that could result in violations of compliance.

VDRs are an excellent solution for M&A as they allow businesses to share private information with third parties, like lawyers and accountants. This makes it easier for them to work with these parties and facilitates the transaction without divulging important information that could be used to gain competitive advantage.

The first step in using the virtual data room is setting it up that usually requires users to sign up, provide their personal details and consent to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. After that the administrator usually creates user groups and invites users to join the platform. Documents are then uploaded and classified to make them easier to locate and search. Granular document permissions permit administrators to block users from accessing specific folders and documents.
